Nestan is the centre of in the kitchen and throws the shop alone when it matters.

Since Nestan also comes from Chkhakoura, she knows the dishes that are cooked in the mountain villages and on the alp. This way we can serve Burano or Sironi as it is made in the local households. We are proud to be able to offer the traditional food of the people up here in the mountains.

Here she presents fresh trout from the mountain stream near Chkhakoura.

We meet Rezo the first time in the fish farm in Quabra, where we were stranded in the first season after a weeklong snowstorm. There he was cooking the best fried trout for us, I have ever eaten.


Two years later he joined the team as our "Fire-Meister" and summer security guard. As Fire-Meister Rezo is looking after all the fireplaces including hot water and the sauna. But he is also looking after the inside fire and offering Chacha - the local snaps - at any oppertunity.


Rezo is from Chkhakoura.


Geno came to the team on a short notice in December 2016. We realised pretty fast, that we needed one person looking after the fire in the rented cottages - also in the night. So we ask Geno to come up for a week.


He learnd snowmobile driving and proved as a good mechanic. Now he is in charge of looking after our fleet of "Buranis" (snowmobiles) including the Sherpas. As snowmobile driver Geno can bring us help onto the slopes but also can give us a quick pick up with one of the Sherpas.


He is from Chkhakoura.


Mamuka is responsible for all airport transfers. He is driving and coordinating our fleet of 2 Ford Transits and 1 Toyota Hiace to pick up freeriders and  our shopping.
